My Lord Patrek Mallister,
We recently corresponded about the prospective betrothal between Lord Walden Frey and Lady Saffron Banefort. I have been informed that both parties have requested that the courtship be ended, due to irreconcilable differences. I believe that we could steal a march on the Freys by proposing a match that might be more agreeable to both Lord Banefort, and Lady Saffron.
Not only would a direct connection to Seagard be beneficial to the Banefort as another naval power, but a connection to the Arbor through your betrothal to Syrah Redwyne would extend their connection southward as well.
The Lady Saffron have proven to be an amiable, charming, intelligent young lady, and I flatter myself to think that she thinks favorably on me. With that in mind, I would like to put myself forward as the member of the Mallister family to make this match with.
I am far enough from the line of succession that I am not likely to prove a desirable match for a house more powerful than House Banefort, but not so far as to be insulting, given that Lady Saffron is a neice of Lord Banefort rather than a daughter.
I know you have heard me rail against the idea of marriage, and put my mother’s suggestions off as best as I can, but I believe that the proposed match would be advantageous for Seagard and for me. If you find it suitable, you might propose such a match between myself and Lady Saffron to Lord Banefort.
In your service,
-Ser Kamron Mallister.
I have no protestation against your courtship of the Lady Saffron Banefort. I have written to Lord Banefort suggesting the match, and I will send word at such time as my letter has been answered. Should House Banefort approve of this union as well, a betrothal between you and the Lady Saffron, and the new bond between our two houses, would have my blessings.
Lord of Seagard
